In 2019, it seems ridiculous to only wear an item of clothing once—especially if the garment in question is a one-of-a-kind red carpet gown.
Blanchett even discussed the importance of wardrobe recycling in a 2018 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying: "Particularly in today's climate, it seems willful and ridiculous that such garments are not cherished and re-worn."
In the same interview, Blanchett's stylist, Elizabeth Stewart, continued her sentiment, saying: "We need to get the word out to get rid of this ridiculous notion that dresses cannot be worn twice! Beautiful clothes should last a lifetime."
Below are a handful of celebrities who happen to agree with Blanchett, helping to prove that there's absolutely nothing wrong with outfit repeating.
